The joy of dance and the cultural impact it has had on communities throughout history.

Program Description

The company offers residencies, full-scale or smaller-scale performances, and workshops that teach about the history and culture of dance, including music, costumes and language. Students can learn and appreciate social dances, participate in choreographing a piece, and/or prepare for a performance. Company members can work with teachers to focus on a variety of themes (Latin or Swing month, for example) that incorporate the joy of dance. *Example:One performance, titled Dancing Saratogians, recreates an evening in 1902 at Saratoga SpringsÆ Grand Union Hotel. A variety of characters make an appearance from that era and dance, including composer Victor Herbert and the proprietor of the Grand Union Hotel. Dances featured include the polka, waltz, tango and quadrille. After the performance, students will be invited to learn a waltz and assist in creating a new piece of choreography that will unfold before their eyes and surprise dance company members. Students will learn from professional dancers about the history, culture, costuming, musicality, dance partnering and patterns, and choices choreographers make while designing a new piece.
